PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Fire, Air, Earth, Water; often taken for granted but powerful elements essential for life. Earth rising from water, Air encompassing Earth, and the Sun (Fire) overseeing all. I will create an edible work of art that captures the essence of the four elements of nature. It is crucial to human nature that the elements are easily recognized because they are necessary for survival, and I seek to draw attention to this. I am selecting the elements as my subject matter because I want to experiment with a variety of themes and materials by combining my passion for baking with my artistic skills.
